>> i was like 19. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: how about you, daisy? you're also like 19. >> i was at the theater, and i hadn't been able to watch the first half because i was desperately trying to get in touch with j.j. because i didn't know how to call the u.s. i had to google it, all sorts of things. >> jimmy: you were at i aplay. >> yes. >> jimmy: i see. >> sew told me. and obviously i wasn't there for the whole first half. and i had to go in for the second half and not tell the guy i was with. >> jimmy: because it was a secret and you didn't trust him. does he now know you were keeping that from him during the play? >> no. >> jimmy: he does not. maybe he now does. adam, were you shooting "girls" at the time? >> yeah. it was the last day of the second season of "girls" and i got a call, do you want to meet j.j. and talk about "star wars"? yeah. yeah, i would. then it was just months of meeting and making, you know -- weighing it and taking time considering it. then jumping on board.
anybody for how long? >> i feel like i still haven't told anybody. i didn't tell my wife anything. >> jimmy: tell john because he's right there. and he should know what's going on. >> j.j. spoiled it for my -- he assumed i told her everything but i didn't tell her. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> i get into it. >> jimmy: now you know you can trust adam. john, how about you? when you found this out, where was it? >> i was in a basement somewhere waiting for seven months to hear whether i got the part or not. and j.j. released me from absolute -- captivity? >> i was literally just waiting at home to see if j.j. would give me the part and he sent me the e-mail telling me to come to mayfair and meet him. i met him and larry kaz dann. then he broke the news sxo & to me and told me i got the part. it was a good day. >> jimmy: who was the first person you told this news? >> i told my agent, femmy. but i think the most interesting thing was telling my dad. i went home and was like dad, i've just been cast in "star wars."
and he was like, oh, my god. you are in "star wars"? that is fantastic. i knew it. what is "star wars"? [ applause ] >> jimmy: he didn't know? >> he didn't know. >> jimmy: all your families had to be excited. did you pump carrie for information about the things that went on? a lot of crazy things went on in the original "star wars" movies. yes? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you were at the center of a lot of those crazy things. >> i started most of them. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: when you go back to playing the part of princess leia, now general leia, do you have to go back and look at one of -- >> and feel bad about how i've [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well -- yes. >> that's what i do at night. night. yeah. >> jimmy: i see. this is the -- is this the first >> yeah. that's what it was. >> jimmy: and j.j., looks like you had it in an ikea or something like that. >> we were on a stage at the studio, pinewood. you all got together? >> yep. >> jimmy: and you went through the script.
by the way, did you give the script to the actors? >> yeah, j.j., did you? >> no, he didn't. >> not to carrie. [ laughter ] the actors had the script. but that was an amazing thing to see everyone together for the first time. because we had everyone in separate different rooms for months and then all of a sudden we put them all together and we were like crossing our fingers it would go well. and it was kind of an electric >> jimmy: when you have the script in your hands are you nervous about losing it? >> absolutely. i have to say, through the audition process we didn't get to take the script home. so we had to go to pinewood and learn our lines and then go home. i felt like i was living a double life, like batman. it was a real situation. so to have the script on the read-through -- >> you got to learn your lines? >> i did. >> and john came in like eight or nine times to audition. it was a long process. >> thank you, j.j. >> jimmy: eight or nine times? >> yeah, it was a long process. i feel guilty. >> jimmy: adam, you are in a helmet in the clips we've seen from the movie. do we ever see your face?
because otherwise anybody really could have been you, i guess, huh? [ laughter ] you didn't even need to go. >> i don't know. i don't know if i can say. >> i will say that adam was amazing because there were certain things where in theory someone else could have been in there for a shot or two but adam was like no, i want to do every single shot. so he did. he was incredible. >> jimmy: that's a trouper. not a storm trooper but a trouper. yeah. [ laughter ] and daisy, for you this is your first thing, right? this is -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: i imagine you're of course excited but like are you fully aware of what you're in for? >> i don't know. it's kind of been a process this year. like obviously i've never had people going can you sign a picture of me? so that's to get used to. but i'm just pleased to be part of it. >> jimmy: are you all signed for other movies for the future films? >> don't know what you're
>> jimmy: i really feel like i can't get -- carrie, you'll tell me everything. what happens at the end of the movie? [ laughter ] oh, no. what? really? wow. that's a hell of a light saber battle. [ laughter ] >> it involves nudity. >> jimmy: it involves nudity. wouldn't that be something, if you made an r-rated version of -- that would be -- >> can you imagine? >> jimmy: that would have been a becausy move on your part. since i can't get any actual information about the film from any of you, we're going to put you to the test here. you're going to play against a 7-year-old boy who knows an awful lot about "star wars." so we're going to have to put the nudity and the light saber talk to bed for just a few minutes. again, when we come back, the cast of "the force awakens"
